Loom band title too late for newsagents

late-magazineAmazing Loom Bands is a title that has arrived in-store a few months too late as the latest incarnation of the Loom band craze has passed for now. Australia is ahead as Loom bands seem to be big in the UK right now. The other issue with this magazine is the price – $16.95 is too expensive for the Loom Bands fan.

    Yes the bands have died a natural death. The craze is over. I have a few left to try and clear. If all else fails I will put them in with the back to school orders as a little gift. We put a little TNW gift in all the orders and put parents in a draw for a bigger prize. Usually something I have purchased with my Connection points.

    The Loom Bands Magazine is a clear and present indication of how broken the supply model is. The craze was over a long time ago this magazine should never have made it past the door

    not sure about that guys. My copies came in and went straight away. The fad definitely peaked last christmas, but it seems the copies are moving, as i never really took any other mags on this.
